Ratchet & Clank Trilogy The New Sony Icon

Ever since Sony Entertainment entered the games console business, Sony has always try to find a mascot that is brandly linked to the console in the way that Nintendo's mascot Mario and Sega has Sonic. There have been plenty of candidates: Lara Croft and Nathan Drake immediately spring to mind; then there are our friends Ratchet and Clank.

Ratchet & Clank Trilogy

Ratchet & Clank Trilogy, starring alien that look like an animal mechanic Ratchet and his robot chum Clank, is still being made today, and to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their bid to become Sony's mascot, the company has gathered together this compilation of adventures from their heyday, the PlayStation 2 era, when the duo amazed critics and players alike and put it into one tittle the Ratchet & Clank Trilogy.

Ratchet & Clank Trilogy contains Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank 2: Locked & Loaded or as known is some territories as Going Commando and also Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal, and ratchet & clank series never looked better. The stylized art direction in Ratchet & Clank Trilogy really great at 1080p, the team decided to improve color and personality over super-detailed textures that is as good choice in high def as it was for the original releases. Off course, the visuals is not for rivaling the Future titles, which were created from the ground up for PS3, but these worlds is going to  create a great impression. The games still run smooth at 60 frames per second too, and this  was always one of the reasons they felt so great to play.

Looking Ratchet & Clank Trilogy as a whole, the games evolve  both minor and major ways. Also introduced in the second title are the weapon upgrades, this means  the more you use a weapon, the more powerful the weapon becomes. This creates a clean balance between acquisition and maximizing your current weaponry.

Other upgrades are also introduced in Ratchet & Clank Trilogy, that lets the player to boost Ratchet’s armor and his ship. In Locked & Loaded also sees Ratchet learn how to strafe in a proper manner ( opposed to the clunky hover-jet option that is in the original), and this additional control fidelity is used to great effect when put into combat and also the third person shooter gameplay style front and center. And this feature really hits top gear in Up Your Arsenal.

There’s one thing that doesn’t really change across Ratchet & Clank Trilogy, and that’s the combat balance, platforming and puzzle solving. Combat is off course to be the main focus, but in each world our heroes visit generally has at least a few missions, and this makes exploring each new destination become more fun, and players are always buying new weapons and unlocking new items or gadget, open up new areas and explore new challenges. And this make  Ratchet & Clank Trilogy is worth buying.
